As I write this, Indiana Black Expo officials are at the NCAA headquarters announcing key ingredients in its 40th anniversary mix.

The June 8-18 Summer Celebration will included a performance by R&B star Case, who charted with such songs as "Missing You" and "Touch Me, Tease Me". He'll share the stage for a July 16 concert with DJ Kid Capril.

Also coming to town: Dru Hill, Chubb Rock and Rob Base, and rapper DJ Kool for a July 17 concert. On the 18th, it's Teena Marie's turn, along with Keith Sweat.

On the 15th, Mike Epps--featured in such films as "Next Day Air," "Resident Evil: Extinction," and "Next Friday,"--will be picking up IBE's Entertainer of the Year Award.

Keep an eye on the IBE website for more announcements.


Your thoughts?

    As a life long music aficiando, I have to draw the line at most of what I would hear at this event. Little of what they offer has any significant outreach to musical purists with most of it caught up in how offensive an entertainer can be to people of decency.

    Hip Hop is a genre destined to fade deeply into musical oblivion and deservedly so.

  • Re: Expo
    Before you make a comment about the artists performing, perhaps you should do a little research as to which genre they are in. The only one of these performers who is a hip hop artist is DJ Kool. The rest are R&B. BIG difference. I wonder if you've ever even listened to one of their songs.

  1. why oh why does this state continue to elect these you wonder how much was graft out of the 3.8 billion?

  2. i too think this is a great idea. I think the vision and need is there as well. But also agree with Wendy that there may be better location in our city to fulfill this vision and help grow the sports of hockey and figure skating in Indy. Also to help further develop other parts of the city that seem often forgotten. Any of the other 6 townships out side of the three northernmost could benefit greatly from a facility and a vision like this. For a vision that sounds philanthropic, the location is appears more about the money. Would really like to see it elsewhere, but still wish the development the best of luck, as we can always use more ice in the city. As for the Ice growth when they return, if schedules can be coordinated with the Fuel, what could be better than to have high level hockey available to go see every weekend of the season? Good luck with the development and the return of the Ice.

  3. How many parking spaces do they have at Ironworks? Will residents have reserved spaces or will they have to troll for a space among the people that are there at Ruth Chris & Sangiovese?

  4. You do not get speeding ticket first time you speed and this is not first time Mr.Page has speed. One act should not define a man and this one act won't. He got off with a slap on the wrist. I agree with judge no person was injured by his actions. The state was robbed of money by paying too much rent for a building and that money could have been used for social services. The Page family maybe "generous" with their money but for most part all of it is dirty money that he obtained for sources that are not on the upright. Page is the kind of lawyer that gives lawyers a bad name. He paid off this judge like he has many other tine and walked away. Does he still have his license. I believe so. Hire him to get you confiscated drug money back. He will. It will cost you.

  5. I remain amazed at the level of expertise of the average Internet Television Executive. Obviously they have all the answers and know the business inside and out.
